6:01am
manassas. centreville fairfax. all of those corridors look great. a live look outside and first show you what it looks like here in springfield. it looks like it may be a little windy with the camera here shaking. but in the meantime, just a little bit of a delay as you head down from dale city to wood bridge and then again here in springfield. back over to the maps, this time inside the beltway all of your bridges look good across the potomac and anacostia river. and if you're planning to head outside one more time, if you're planning to head to oxon hill, 210 to the wilson bridge in good shape. back to you guys. thanks monika. depends on what polls you look at because there used to be a wide margin in the race for governor in virginia but now more and more polls are shrinking the lead mcauliffe has over cuccinelli. >> delia goncalves is in our satellite center with more on this aspect of the story and who's coming to town this weekend to stump for the candidates? >> reporter: very big hitters and we know that many of the polls as you said show varying

degrees of a lead for mcauliffe but we know he is still according to the polls leading the race. but many of them show that cuccinelli is gaining momentum. not only has the race gained national attention, of course we know that many of the national politics certainly playing a huge part in voters' decisions. the government shutdown hit virginia very hard and while some ann uses say that could -- analysts say that could hurt the republican cuccinelli. he is rallying with rand paul and ted cruz. mcauliffe reports background checks at gun shows, cuccinelli doesn't. cuccinelli wants less government and thinks the health care plan is a failure and while mcauliffe has in the laid out specific -- not laid out specifics he said he wants to fund education with federal money through possibly expanding medicare. both candidates agrow however they want to create jobs and grow the economy. >> my tax cut plan which will
6:03am
grow 58,000 new jobs and reduce the personal income tax the 5%. and the business income tax to 4%. >> my opponent proposes $1.4 billion tax cut and resoundly criticized. it will come right out of education. early childhood development, reform in the sols. teacher pay. investing in community colleges. financial aid at higher ed. i think that's the prudent way to do budgeting. >> i like those too. i like education. i like puppies. but i don't bring a puppy home. i don't bring a puppy home if i don't have a plan for how i'm going to deal with that puppy. or guess what my house is going to look like. and he's all puppy and no plan. >> reporter: so how are voters feeling four days out? we talked to some of them coming up in the next half hour. andrea and mike back to you. thank you. >> the woman accused of vandalizing the washington national cathedral and possibly the lincoln memorial with paint

6:05am
three million americans they're going to lose their current policies. the plans are being phased out because they don't meet minimum standards set by the health care act. the irs is warning americans about a scary new phone scam. someone could call your house impersonating an irs agent and demand you pay taxes you don't owe. now this is happening all over the country right now. the caller demand payment immediately. either by you, loading money onto a prepaid card or sending it via wire transfer. they threaten your arrest if you hang up. you can get another call right away from someone saying they're with the police or an agent at the dmv. you need to know the irs would never ask for your credit card number. a prepaid debit payment or through wire transfer. and amazon.com is giving back in a big way. if you shop al smile.amazon.com. the company will donate .5% of your purchase through charity.

6:08am
6:09am
it is 6:10 here on this very warm friday morning. temps in the 60s and70s. watching a line of heavy rain approaching i-81 potentially with some gusts toward 50 and 60. we've gop sot watches and -- got some watches and some warnings. temperatures topping out in the mid 70s. good morning monika. good morning howard. here's the beltway on the north side of town at new hampshire avenue. we're in good shape between 95
6:10am
and georgia avenue right now. it's friday morning light. work continue osen a crash though out in gainesville on the inbound side of route 29 after route 15 with only the left lane getting by. ready set row. it's november 1st and that's the time for men to grow their mustaches in honor of movember. you probably seen it people around your office probably do it. that's when men pay special attention to their health issues and the money raised is to fight certain illnesses. joining me this morning is lee teen mobro. he's already bring his plus -- growing his mustache. tell people about this. a lot of the friends around work get a chance to do this. often times not too many tv people do it but maybe we should. what's it about? >> it's a men's health movement. you grow a mustache for the month of november and you register on www.movember.com and you can raise awareness about men's health issues and raise some money for cancer research as well. >> so when you do that do you try get pledges or just get people to pledge or how do you
6:11am
try to solicit donations? >> it's really what you want to make it. a traditional fundraiser you can do that. you can also take a picture of your beautiful mo and post it on social media. and people will you know pledge their support that way. >> all right so i've had some friend that do this. and i've also had some wives that have complained about it. however you are saying there's a group of women that are supporters and they're called what? >> mo -- and often times they're as important if not more important than the mo bros. you know, you'll have a wife or a girlfriend who says eh i'm not so sure about the mustache. but part of the men's health movement and part of the month is that you're also making healthy decisions. so -- put down the cheese steak, eat a salad. go to the doctor. and get your annual checkup if you're of the age where you should be getting checked for cancer. so you know often times in our culture, you have women who really are pressuring men when
6:12am
they're sick even to go to the doctor. >> right. >> this is you know -- if you go to the doctor -- >> they're saying why do you have a mustache? you know what? here's why and it's a conversation starter i guess. >> exactly. and the registration is on the website as well. and often times they're some of the biggest fundraisers. they show their support and encourage the men in their lives to make healthy decisions and encourage them if they're growing a mo as well. >> do they have any numbers on how much money it's raised over the years? has it been significant? >> i don't know the total numbers but last year in d.c. we had 5,000 people participate over 5,000. >> oh wow. >> and raise over -- $900,000. in the u.s. that's 200,000 participants and $21 million. >> no kidding. >> yeah. >> and nowadays with social media you can put all the mustache photos all over place and get people to you know kind of go ahead and be a part of it too. >> exactly. movember.com is linked up with facebook and twitter and with linkedin. they have an app which makes it
6:13am
really easy to post. and it's a great way to use social media. >> hysterical. hopefully bring up some conversations and save some lives in the long run with a lot of doctors' payments and the -- appointments and the discussions that really need to take place because the guys really blow off health care more than they should. >> exactly and that's what it's all about. is men growing a mo and making healthy decisions. >> lee. >> thank you so much. >> howard? >> we have a busy morning weather wise. a better afternoon and a windy day today. we're going to have some showers around even into the afternoon but the worst of it is going to be between probably now. 9:00, 10:00. some sunny breaks as well and we'll be in the mid 70s for highs and still mild and breezy this evening but the wind will be dying down certainly. the problem this morning is a front is coming and the winds with them could be gusting 50, 60 miles an hour. right now the severe thunderstorm watch north and west of us until 10:00 a.m. this line is going to blow past this here i think by 8:00. if not earlier. so this is not going to last until 10:00 but potentially closer to the metro we may get
6:14am
in on a watch. the yellow counties to the west all severe thunderstorm warnings until 6:30 with the thin line of heavy rain that's coming through. we have lighter showers in spots southwest you see it around culpeper and also up in toward anne arundel county and here in d.c.. montgomery, a few light sprinkles but this is this line of heavy showers extending in toward ear sections of west virginia and came through cross junction without too much fanfare. you look at the doppler. a little hole there but then look at the intense line right here. just west of martinsburg right now. hagerstown in about 15 minutes or so as it's raising east at about 50 miles per hour and that's the concern. near the i-81 corridor or east there. get ready into loudoun county and jefferson county, west virginia first and then in toward washington county. frederick all see this line in the next hour or so as it comes from the i-81 area marching east. look at the temperatures though. upper 60s and low 70s at this
6:15am
hour. average high is 64 degrees. now we're going to blow past that in the mid 70s. not going to see much change in temps and we get the sunshine and even upper 70s not out of the question because we're start stock warm. some wind out there. also wind advisory until noon from the blue ridge west gusting to 31 right now at national with a south wind sustained at 20. cloudy skies and 69 degrees and muggy out there. you can see what's happening, we've got the deepening storm system in the great lakes. see that area open low pressure spinning around from michigan moving toward ontario? trailing a cold front through. and some pretty impressive upper level winds. and what happens when you get the heavy showers they can get into the upper level winds and transport that down to the surface and that's why that line is really the greatest concern for us over the next few hours. then we're going to see temperatures drop off but the cooldown will be a gradual one starting tonight. in fact tonight will be down in the 40s and 50s here. 56 for the low. and tomorrow, well, we won't be in the 70s -- got in late. got hit on the way to work.
6:16am
the car's probably gone. but this is what the map has not updated like i would like. we've got 50s and 60s on saturday for highs. and it will all be in the upper 60s in culpeper. all right here's your forecast. yellow alert today. mainly for the morning. for the rain, the wind, temperatures will be in the mid 70s though. and we drop into the 50s tonight in town. some 40s in the suburbs. less wind. tomorrow breezy and isolated shower. there will be a few showers though in the higher elevations. 65 in d.c.. and then 30s and 40s tomorrow night leading to a chilly couple of days. sunday and monday, 54. by the way there's a partial solar eclipse if you're up early. 6:30 standard time on sunday. because we turn the clocks back saturday night. go by the daylight saving time. chilly monday 53 and then look temperatures turn around to 70 with showers by thursday. monika samtani, stepping in. volumes billing it's friday. -- building it's friday. how's it looking? we have a serious crash inside

i'll put politics aside and put families first. mark herring: endorsed by the washington post he'll crack down on sexual predators, go after scam artists who prey on seniors and military families, and protect the rights of women to make their own health care decisisions but senator obenshain has the wrong agenda. he voted to ban birth control pills and outlaw abortion, even for rape and incest victims. he's wrong for virginia. 6:22. watching a severe thunderstorm watch box to our northwest and that line from hagerstown to west of winchester now a severe thunderstorm warning until 7:00 a.m. frederick county, maryland, washington county, maryland. frederick county, virginia. jefferson county, and berkeley county in the panhandle. these tours are moving east at -- showers are moving east at 45 and could contain gusty

6:23am
all of us. we shall see. little war of words between mike shanahan and albert haynesworth. remember they didn't get along when big al was here. a couple of days ago haynesworth called shanahan conniving and all about himself. shanahan shot back yesterday saying the only people i haven't gotten along with were those that were lazy that had no character. all right. later today the nationals will formally name matt williams manager. he has never managed and he was first and third base coach in arizona the last few years, a 2:00 press conference is scheduled. and the game of the week high school-wise is set. it's a good one. sherwood and paint branch. 26,000 votes, highlights will lead our coverage later on tonight. that's going to do it for morning sports, have a great friday everybody. thank you so much dave and here's the beltway on the knot side of town -- north side of town. outer loop is the right side of the screen. after new hampshire avenue some brake lights at georgia. there's a serious crash inside

6:32am
that tuesday's election could indicate how the nationwide elections are going to go next year. >> delia goncalves is in our satellite center with more on this part of the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning andrea, mike, all eyes are on virginia and time is winding down. the election just four days away. and a whole lot of campaigning over the weekend to try to sway those last-minute undecided voters. if you take a look at the polls lots of them vary by degrees and margins, however. most show that cuccinelli is gaining momentum. terry mcauliffe though still holding on to a pretty strong lead. mcauliffe is trying for a second time to lead the state. the democrat is running against former state senator and attorney general ken cuccinelli. some say mcauliffe is short on specifics but according to the virginia public access project the democrat has raised more than $35 million. that's nearly double cuccinelli's total. but ken couch nell low is
6:33am
hoping to realdy -- cuccinelli is hoping to rally conservatives by campaigning against the president's health care plan and forgun rights. >> bringing obama into the state -- although the president is widely regarded by a lot of people. he's a polarizing figure. >> the fact that cuccinelli is making this the focus of his campaign tells me he is concerned about his ability to ratchet up a strong turnout among the conservative core. >> the anonymous sources that we had to choose between a kook and coo crook. >> there it is. the lesser of the two evils. >> reporter: well, that is what's on the mind of some voters in virginia. and it seems like terry mcauliffe really pulling out all the stops and a big gun. president obama will campaign with the democrat this sunday in arlington at lee high school. andrea, mike back to you. >> they're also saying this could be a watershed moment for

dollars into an account to pay for medical expenses. it used to be you'd have to pend the money by -- spend the money by the end of the year or you'd forfeit your dollars. and fewer college grads are buying homes nowadays, a pew study finds that the number of folks 18 to 32 buying homes is dropping. the new york federal reserve also reports the home ownership rate for college grads is now lower than for nongrads. that's the first time that's ever happened and the worry is the trend could cause the housing market to drag for years to come. you can blame high debt levels, weak job prospects and you know you really can't discount the lessons learned after the bubble burst for the housing market. so many of these people saw what their parents went through and just saying gosh i don't want to get myself in that boat. >> still scary too. >> it will be scary for a while. the boy scouts of america possibly getting an eagle
